Seems very produced
As a Rutgers fan I enjoyed it!
Save your time, not worth a listen
Basically consists of the beat writers at the NSL complaining about things as mundane and trivial as where they have to park on game day. And when it is football-related chatter, its not very astute- even a casual fan could provide you with the same level of observation and analysis. No insightful information. The one thing it has going for it- production quality is decent, sound is good.
If you want information beyond what you probably already know from watching the game yourself, do yourself a favor and listen to the Rutgers scoutcast podcast. Sam Hellman and Brian Dohn do a fantastic job covering the team and unlike these guys, actually know whats going on behind the scenes (maybe its because they spend their time watching practice, talking to people in the program and researching as opposed to complaining about their parking spots).
